Note from the Associate Editor, Melissa Lin
I often speculate how writers, with their innumerable personal and professional experiences, have developed such deep and genuine interest in their subject matters. Sometimes venturing to an “About” page solves that problem, and other times reading an author’s biography leaves me even more intrigued–or confused.
Our first blog is authored by Mike Willee whose interesting life path has ushered him through the Navy, golf course maintenance, sales experience, a political science education, and now writing blog posts about timely intellectual property issues.
Our second newest member might be the first organization of its kind–at least within the LexBlog network. Richmond Chambers is a partnership of 15 specialist immigration barristers, 2 pupil barristers, 10 legal associates, and 4 business professionals. Barristers, different than lawyers who represent clients, are courtroom advocates, receive additional training in ethics and court practice, and are often considered legal scholars. This blend of scholar, lawyer, and advocate arguably creates some of the best people to resolve any issue, especially in immigration.
Russ DeMott of the third newest blog has a demonstrated history in finance law as a licensed financial advisor, an Associate Probate Judge, a Certified Mediator for Circuit Court and Probate Court cases, and now as a Bankruptcy lawyer and blogger. He demonstrates his genuine care for individuals experiencing or at-risk of bankruptcy in South Carolina, by both exploring trends and detailing the nitty-gritty of specific codes in his blog posts.
Please join us in welcoming our newest members–who each have fascinating stories and insights to share–and catch up on all the newest blogs in recent weeks here
